Abstract
The continuous simulation principles were applied and utilised in the development of a materials handling model for high rise construction. The logic of the model and the main components of its brick handling module are described. The paper concludes with emphases on continuous gathering and utilisation of historical information as the nucleus of sound construction management decisions.
